What a Miss!

The volume today is very high. I was not able to get a good internet connection. When I opened the Sierra charts I saw the market was about to go down. I tried to open the Transact platform may times but could not achieve a good connection. I considered opening it on live trading (as my regular readers know, I am currently trading on the simulator only), just to put in an order, as no order in the simulator could get through in such a bad connection, as it seemed obvious the market will be going down. I was afraid to put a live order with a bad connection, so didn’t.

A few minutes later I updated the Sierra charts which were also not getting a good connection. The market had indeed dived, about 5 points down! Had I put a live order for 2 contracts as I was considering doing, I had been now $500 richer! What a miss!
